Two contemporary practitioners' artistic researches have had some bearing on my own. Firstly, my work has been influenced by that of Tomma Abts, her holding and unfolding space and use of light from different sources. “There is a tense dialogue between the pictorial illusion of space in her paintings and the literal surface.” (Tom Morton, “Terminally New”, Frieze, No 97, March, 2006). In my work the illusive, emerging and disappearing boundaries and shapes which expose themselves are cut off and create margins which are the edges and borders separating the coloured areas from non-coloured spaces; some areas are left blank. A graphical interface is created by the formation of a sharp division between two or several types of patterns. The patterns encourage a recurrent theme to develop as they structurally evolve.
Equipment Oil on linen, technical gelatine and linseed oil.
Technical My work contains spatial anomalies to expose different perceptions, semiotic systems which are used to create a dialogue between the artist, the audience and the painting. The work uses the blank field as a domain, allowing empty spaces to interact in various ways with the spatial objects which themselves become a visible shape of misleading illusory distortion within the patterns. The intention is to demonstrate the interplay between shapes, forms and shadows to achieve a 3- dimensional effect. Performing the activity within the action of practice requires interplay between decision making, choosing which spaces to leave empty and which to fill and the process of drawing. This requires constant questioning as there is no fixed horizon or orientation. The circular orientation creates a tool to facilitate specific perspectives which allow the image autonomy to spread according to the chiaroscuro, resulting in the illusion of impossible objects in unlikely places.
